During a week that everyone is up in arms over a miscommunication from one comic publisher, another firestorm prepares to set the Intardwebz ablaze as Eiichiro Oda’s One Piece gets new issues digitally before arriving in print.

This week sees the digital day and date release of volume 59 of One Piece, which arrives in comic book and book stores.  Next week volume #60 hits the digital marketplace, with volumes 61 and 62 following after.  According Rich Johnston over at Bleeding Cool, the digital ahead of print release, causes the series to catch up with the Shonen Jump serialisation of the series.

One Piece, Naruto and Bleach are three titles that are now advance-day-and-date.

Weird…It’s almost like someone was just talking about this happening.

    So, are these new or translated? It seems like, if they are translated, it shouldn’t be all that hard to e-publish them quite quickly.
